New HeartBeat clients include: DMS International, Inc.; Hunter Dickinson, Inc.; Fuel Tech, Inc.; and Winston & Strawn LLP.
In Q4, SilkRoad technology announced its partnership with Indeed.com, the leading search engine for jobs. SilkRoad’s integration with Indeed allows SilkRoad customers to expand their reach to potential candidates. Jobs delivered directly to Indeed from SilkRoad’s OpenHire are included in Indeed’s organic results and the platform’s network of more than 10,000 websites. With this integration, SilkRoad customers can now reach the single largest audience of both active and passive job seekers on the Internet.
The company continued to receive industry recognition for its products and was honored by both the CODiE Awards and Network Product Guide’s Hot Companies. SilkRoad is a finalist in the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) for a CODiE Award in the “Best Human Capital Solution” category. The program honors the software and information industry’s finest products and services and excellence in corporate achievement.
SilkRoad technology was also named a 2010 Hot Companies finalist by Network Products Guide. SilkRoad was selected from a global industry analysis of information technology vendors.

SilkRoad has been honored with the Hot Companies recognition multiple times and consistently excels in meeting and exceeding the 4Ps criteria.
“It has been another great quarter for SilkRoad, with continued client growth and positive feedback from the industry about our newest solution, HeartBeat,” said Andrew J. “Flip” Filipowski, Executive Chairman and CEO of SilkRoad technology. “We are ecstatic that so many clients choose to purchase multiple solutions, and we are humbled by the award recognition our products and services received this quarter. Both validate that we are doing what we set out to do – provide excellent customer service and the best products available to enable companies to hire and retain the top talent in the market.”
